This may just be the most well-thought-out and wise idea I have every heard of. These immigrants are destroying our country bit by bit. Before slavery, the place was utopia, but now, I am too afraid to even walk home at night because the negros might shoot or rape me. Also, they bring down our average life expectancy (because they keep killing everyone) as well as use up all of our tax money for their welfare and food stamps.
Without them, our country would be "better" in a great number of senses. I would love to hear your thoughts on the plan...

Illegal immigration is a serious issue facing America today, but the solution is not to build a giant wall. Most importantly, the wall will do little to stop illegal immigrants from entering the country. Instead, people will remain desperate. The wall will increase danger, and result in the injuries and deaths of people simply looking to make a better life for their self. Secondly, the wall will provide a symbol of oppression, and the economic and social differences that face Mexico and the United States, and could even have negative mental implications on Mexicans, who could view the wall in a way similar to that of the Berlin Wall. There is no need to put a wall in place on American soil that can, for some people, represent the harsh realities of the Iron Curtain, and other walls that became less about separation, and more about ensuring that people have little chance of escape. Rather, the solution lies in encouraging legal immigration. This can be done through building stronger trade relations with Mexico while providing it with support, and increasing options for legal immigrants, who are currently getting the "short end of the stick."This solution will allow both economies to grow and become prosperous, while reducing the illegal immigrant crime, and allowing other people to become more sensitive to other races. I would also love to here your thoughts in this sensitive issue.

And by building this what are you solving......rather you are just being selfish and not considering those in need.You see the thing is the world was once one big plate without boundaries and just because we were separated doesn't justify other countries to build these so called walls WE ARE ONE PEOPLE joined by liberty equality and fraternity
